चले जा रहे हैं

बहुत ही लंबा रस्ता नजर आ रहा है
दूर दूर तक कोई मोड़ नही दिख रहा है
और उसपे हम चले जा रहे हैं

अकेले हैं, अकेलापन भी महसूस कर रहे हैं
पर हम कुछ कर नही पा रहे हैं
बस चले जा रहे हैं

कभी कभी रस्ते में लोगों से मिलते हैं
कभी कभी उनके भीड़ में खो भी जाते हैं
पर फिर भी अकेले हैं और चले जा रहे हैं

छोटे छोटे पैर बढ़े हो गये हैं, रफ्तार भी बढ़ी है
पर यह रस्ता कभी खतम ही नही होता है
और हम, अब भी चले जा रहे हैं

Now the above poem in English.
I won't call it a poem though. I didn't try to write the English version in a poetic way. Just for you all to understand.

A very long road is in my sight
I cannot see a single point of turn
And I am walking on it

I am alone and feeling very lonely
But I am not able to do anything
Except walking on this road

Sometimes on this road, I meet with people
Sometimes I am lost in the crowd
Yet I am alone and still walking on the road

Tiny little legs have grown up now, speed has increased too
But this road never seems to end
And I am still walking on it

Yeah thats how one feels studying in IIT's or some other institutes, staying in hostels away from home and the uncertainty of the future..

Well written Sumit

One has to walk
There is no escape
Remaining alone is not good
Help others, you will find a dude
Company will be available
Loneliness escapable
Enjoy the walk
No other talk.

Always a shame how much can be lost in the translation of such things! Still sounds well enough - and true sentiments; it can be a lonely road we walk, but still we walk...

I will admit though, I do wish I could read the original Hindi.

Sometimes loneliness can walk with us, when we least expect it. Beautifully expressed.

Nice. Thanks for translating from the Hindi so we could all share in the read.

Simply wonderful! I know how difficult it is to translate poetry. I live in Brazil now and would love to translate my poems to Portuguese. It is such a beautiful language but my command of Portuguese is too limited. Thanks you for translating for us although it would be perfect to read in the original. Thanks, too, for your visit to my blog. hugs, pat

Nice One - The hindi Poem!!

Came back to read this one again. I was wondering what you named it since it seems like a dream. I feel like I want to call you "Dream Walker."
